Comments
Comments: It had been a year since we'd done this loop (park at one trailhead, walk to the other, and then up and over the mountain and then down/back to the car), and in that time significant work has been done to the trail system -- new parking lot for Ledges Trail trailhead, as well as quite a bit of fine rock work on the Bald Peak Trail, in an effort to deal with some of the eroded sections (sad to see herd paths still going to the side of and around some of this work).

This trail system continues to get better and better.

Great fall colors on this peak, and excellent views of Mt. Washington from summit.
